We plan to have our softball season begin on Tuesday, May 25 at Sharp Park in Lansing (1401 Elmwood Rd., Lansing). Teams will play double headers as usual, with either 4 or 5 teams in the league. The emphasis this season will be on playing softball as much as we can, so at times there may be a sharing of players, or a “bye” team stepping in if a team is forfeiting due to COVID issues. The tournament will be held July 30-31. (It may be a one-day event on July 31 if we only have 4 teams in the league.) Safety protocols will be in place and discussed before we begin play. The first practice is planned for Tuesday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m. at Lake Lansing Park North (6260 E. Lake Dr., Haslett). Interested individuals, aged 16 and older, with softball skills are invited to join the team.
At University United Methodist Church, we affirm that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we are an open and inclusive congregation and welcome all persons into full participation regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic situation, age, ability, education, background and whether single or partnered.
